We read Goldilocks and the Three Bears this week. The children had to put the pictures in order and label using ordinal numbers then tell what happened in each picture. The children did a great job and are really coming along with their writing.
We worked on subtraction using "Five Little Monkey's". We sang the song and watched a power point then we acted out the story. The kids had a really great time with the alligator as it ate up each monkey. They also made subtraction sentences using the monkeys.
We started working on addition sentences last week. Children were put in pairs and given snowman with buttons and had to roll a dice as a number generator and add the numbers using buttons then write the numbers on their sheet. They also had horses with a horse corral doing the same activity the next day.
Our Valentine celebration was cut short because of 12' of snow, but we were able to make Valentines books. We counted hearts and wrote the correct number. We were also able to sort and graph candy hearts. We will be able to have our party and dance this Friday.
We have started a Groundhog challenge to test if the myth of the groundhog is correct. We will be collecting weather data for the next six weeks and talking to other schools from other states to discuss their weather to see if we are going to have six more weeks of winter. Stay tuned to see what we find out.
We have named our groundhog Hoggy. Our weather for the first week was mostly cloudy and rainy the average temperature was 40.
